The Mother Lode Rose Society is offering a new look at enhancing the rose garden at its monthly meeting at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 5 at the Amador Senior Center, 229 New York Ranch Road in Jackson.
Verne Pershing, the Cowboy Gardener, is an expert on beautifying your landscape. He will present a program creating a new look with the use of native plants in and around your rose garden.
He has created many California native plant gardens in recent years. He has created a sustainable meadow on a challenging south facing slope with porous granite soils by planting one thousand plugs and liners, using primarily, plants he and a local grower had grown.
He is a full-service licensed contractor located in the Placerville areas. He has served the Sierra Foothills including Placerville, El Dorado County and the Sacramento Valley since 2001.
Among his many accomplishments he has designed and built beautiful gardens including stone work and water features.
Pershing’s motto is, “Landscaping is not just about plants and irrigation, it is about manifesting a holistic vision of a man-made environment which results in a permanent improvement of the site while honoring the presence of nature.”
